Since Carol Dweck’s ground-breaking book on growth mindsets, educators have been quick to embrace the Growth Mindset doctrine to boost motivation and achievement in students.
Despite this, some sceptics find the growth mindset ideas a little shallow, and too easily based on ‘positive thinking’. After all, you can’t ‘growth mindset’ your way out of a learning disability. Moreover, because Growth Mindset has been so widely embraced, many educators have been given incomplete information about Mindset, how it works, and the extent to which it is helpful.
As one of the only people in Australia to have conducted mindset experimental research on real participants, Dr Justin Coulson has uncovered the facts (and the myths) about growth mindsets – including what works and what doesn’t in real classrooms.
In this Educators Masterclass you’ll discover everything you didn’t know you didn’t know about Growth Mindset. You’ll unpack how feedback shapes motivation and achievement, and find out how praise and grades can undermine the very learning we are trying to promote. Plus you’ll work on strategies to accelerate growth and mastery rather than performance and achievement – with amazing results.
